Skittles Popcorn for the 4th of July




I have wanted to add to the great popcorn collection for a while. I found several different skittle popcorn recipes and thought I do something for the Fourth of July. Well skittles doesn't make blue or white normally.

After I bought two bags of skittles at one store I found skittles Fourth of July mix but only in small bags, then at the supermarket I found the big bags.

Course after I have my son separate them, I forgot to take pictures of the bag, but you get the idea.

Step 1: Pop Corn

You need about 10 cups of pop corn per color/flavor

Note: if you want white for forth of July it is better to pop the pop corn the old fashion way rather than use microwave.

1/2 cup of corn kernels will make enough

Pick out any unpopped kernels

Step 2: Find a Smart Preschooler

Separate 32 oz of Skittles in to colors. You should have about 1 cup of each color.

Step 3: Bubble Bubble Boil and Bubble

Melt 4 oz of butter and 1/4 cup light corn syrup in a pan.

Add in one Skittle flavor and stir constantly until Skittles are melted.

Step 4: Cool and Repeat

Pour over 10-12 cups of popped Popcorn

Mix until popcorn is well covered.

Turn out on to waxed paper until cooled.

Repeat for the other colors.
